Feeling safe and happy at school

At Parklands Primary School, we want to make sure that you feel looked after, safe and happy when you are in and out of school. We also want you to feel confident to seek support from school should you ever feel unsafe. Bullying of any kind is not tolerated and is unacceptable at our school.


We can help you by:

  • Helping you to know what bullying is and how to spot it.
  • Teaching you what to do if you feel like you are being bullied, or if someone else is being bullied.
  • Telling you the names of grownups you can speak to.
  • Being there to help and support you, to make things better


You can stop bullying by:

At Parklands Primary, we stand united against bullying. As a responsible and compassionate student, you have the power to make a difference. If you witness bullying, take a brave step forward. Speak up and tell a teacher or trusted adult. Be a friend to those who need support, and include everyone in your activities. Treat others as you want to be treated – with kindness and respect. Remember, by being a role model and choosing kindness, you’re actively creating a safe and inclusive environment where every child can thrive


Who can help me in school?

Any of the adults in school will help you, including your teachers or you may want to go one of these adults.


We are all here to listen to you.
